Had high expectations and it blew them out of the water which is rare I find. Sit at the bar and let Walter guide you through the experience
Must haves burrata & lamb ribs and fried arroz negto w squid and romesco. Also excellent and interesting wine list. Cozy energetic atmosphere. If you haven’t been put on you to dine list!
Excellent food, drinks, and wine list. Service was great.
Friendly, lively atmosphere in a cozy space.
Great for dinner with friends or date.
The food was excellent, it is like a home made meal, flavours are not obvious but perfectly crafted. Every plate is an adventure onnits own.
Pricey, but it's a treat. Tremendous food and flavors. They know what they are doing. A unique dining experience. WELL DONE.
Absolutely loved the menu, the flavors, the cocktails, the ambience. No nonsense. Not happy about my roasted eggplant being served up in the form of a phallus. No thanks!
I was disappointed. Some of the tapas were very good, and others, not so much. For that reason, I rated it 3 stars. For the prices, I expected better.
Absolutely loved our dinner at Estela, each dish was incredibly well crafted with insane flavors. Hands down one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Extremely kind service, great food, and beautiful atmosphere.
My 2nd visit to Estela was somehow even better than the first. My niece and I appreciated Ryan’s thorough knowledge of both the menu and the spectacular wines by the glass list. This food is such a pleasure to experience.
Great food. Amazing desert. Really suprising!!
Ignacio’s food is always amazing. I’ve followed him since il bucco, and will continue to do so.
Loved the food & service!!!!!
Nothing more to say than amazing! Second time we have been and there is not one thing that was not amazing!
It was amazing
Took one hour and a half to sit, eventhough i had a reservation.
Loved the food , the flavours were exciting and. Joy to the palette !
Nice and criative dishes in a cool environment.
And with fair prices.
We just loved.
Red wines by the glass were all not tasty. The ricotta dumplings were excellent & the deserts very creative.
Fantastic food, very good service. Quite noisy, but that didn’t disturb us. We’ll come again!
Really enjoyed this place. Interesting wine list and food offerings made this really unique . Tight fit but so are most small NYC restaurants. Thought the service was very good and for the money, I would certainly recommend.
Impresionante la sencillez y profundidad de cada plato
Las combinaciones, los ingredientes y la técnica perfecta
The new person working the door is more than a bit aggressive. Don’t be late or she will give away your table — even if you’re a regular!
Food was AMAZING, but it was crazy noisy and we were sitting 20cm away from our neighbors!!!
Not a good experience. I gave a second chance to Estela after an average first time two years ago. All is amazing, except for food. 200$ for two bland tartare, two tomato salad and two squash and miso salad, two biers is a joke. At the moment of the reservation few days in adavance I sent a note for alert about my garlic allergy. I’ve also report we don’t eat meat but fish was really welcome. Once seated the gentle waiter said that we had a really restricted choice because most of the menu had garlic. A serious restaurant should turn back to guest saying their inability to chamge the menu. Or it could prepare something of affordable as happens in many good restaurants in town. Anyway, apart from the food, ambiance and service work perfectly, included the smart waiter that was really upset for the embarrassing situation. Perfect place to hanging out for good cocktails in a cozy environment. For eating New York has thousands of better choices.
Consistently a delicious experience - every time we go, it's great. Don't skip on dessert.
The food was excellent, service great and atmosphere nice and casual. My only criticism is it is expensive for the size of the portions.
Everything was great except that it is deafeningly loud
A super dark but lively place with phenomenal food for the price.
We love the food, the place, the service and even the prices. We celebrate our anniversary and it was awesome. A must of NYC.
Good food . Good service . Small place,. A little dark.
We had a great meal! Everything from cocktails, wine choice and small plate choices all worked perfectly. Thanks so much for a great experience!
The food was creative and delicious. Nothing I ate was disappointing. It was a bit on the pricey side although comparable to similar restaurants in NYC. Service was adequate but could have been better at times. Our busboy/runner was probably as or more personable than our server. We had a show to get to and they did a perfect job of getting all the food to us in an accelerated fashion and getting us on our way. Would definitely go back to try the other amazing looking dishes on the menu that I didn't get to try this time around.
This is our 5th time or so visiting Estela. We love the food and atmosphere there. We will come back soon shortly after! Sayonara for now :)
Great food, but lighting is way too soft. "you eat first with your eyes" and impossible to see the food presentation; and the noise level makes it impossible to carry on a conversation.
Great food though
Never disappoints but some acoustic investigation to reduce noise would be great.
Food was good but did not live up to the hype. We visited Cafe Altro (same team) a few weeks ago where everything was excellent and so we felt execution was just a little lacking compared to that experience.
Every single dish was right on point! Excellently executed with fairly simple ingredients! Definitely my favorite meal, beats some two Michelin's star restaurants!!
We sat down at 7:45. Once the waitress found out we weren’t ordering the correct number of items from the menu or dollar value worth of food for her liking, she proceeded to tell us we needed to leave by 8:45. There was no scenario where we would have ordered more food at that point. Not acceptable for any restaurant to tell guests they have an hour to eat and leave.
Outstanding evening. Small - medium plates. We'll orchestrated presentation. Great unusual wine list
Always a great experience at Estela. Went there for Sunday brunch. Server was excellent with his recommendations and the food was wonderful. One of our favorite places when we are in NYC.
